Star quilt is done

It was more than four years ago that I learned how to do chicken scratch embroidery.  A very nice lady from my quilting group shared her knowledge of the old art.  Up until she brought in some of her work, I had not seen this technique before.

It probably took me close to a year to finish the blocks.  There are 20 blocks and they are 16" square.  When I dug the quilt top out about a month ago because of a post I saw online, I decided it was time for me to get busy and quilt it.  Before I started the quilting I found a scripture that I wanted to add on the sashing strips.  The stars are the only part that is hand stitched.  The scripture verse, Proverbs 3:5-6, is machine embroidered.
